On the heels of its recent 90% off summer sale last month, JetBlue has launched another fare sale to select destinations that ends tomorrow, though you can book tickets almost through the end of the year.

JetBlue's Midsummer Night's Dream sale runs now through August 7, 2013.
JetBlue's Midsummer Night's Dream sale runs now through August 7, 2013.

Here are the details: Book now through August 7, 2013 for great deals on flights traveling from September 3-December 18, 2013 (with the exception of Thanksgiving holiday blackout dates November 22-December 2, 2013). Note, these fares are not available on Expedia, Hotwire, Orbitz, CheapTickets, Travelocity, Priceline or LowestFare, and they include government taxes and fees. Fare sales also apply to the TrueBlue points you need.

Here is the full list, and like their spring fare sale, there are some decent deals, but always double check to make sure you can't find something better. Your best bet is to find fares on typically expensive routes without much competition, or to smaller regional airports.

For example, if you wanted to take a long weekend in Martha's Vineyard in September, you'd only be paying $59 each way ($118 total) as opposed to JetBlue's normal fare of $320 on this route (or $485 on competitor Delta!). This fare would also be 5,000 TrueBlue points plus $2.50 with the sale, a value of 1.15 cents per point.

Or from Hartford, Connecticut, to San Juan, Puerto Rico, which is going for $150 each way with this sale, but which would normally cost you over $400 on the non-stop on JetBlue for a long weekend in November, or $330 to stop through Charlotte on US Airways at the cheapest. The flight would also cost you 9,300 TrueBlue points each way plus $2.50, a value of 1.58 cents per point.

On the other hand, although New York JFK-Washington Dulles is $65 each way with this sale, you can find a cheaper roundtrip on Delta.

And all the airline's competitors are offering better transcon rates (including JetBlue itself) from JFK-LAX roundtrip in September via Orbitz. With the sale, that flight is $169 each way ($338 total), but on Orbitz it's going for $323 on all the major airlines:

As always, do the math for yourself and make sure you are getting the best value possible. Also remember that JetBlue is a transfer partner of American Express Membership Rewards, although I wouldn't suggest transferring points since the ratio is an unfavorable 250 Amex points to 200 TrueBlue points, so you'd be hard-pressed to get values of better than 1 cent per Amex point for that - better to save them for a higher-value redemption.

If you're planning some fall travel already and you know JetBlue is your carrier of choice, take some time today and tomorrow to check out the sale and see if you can get a better deal on your itinerary than you would elsewhere.
